One of the biggest outdoor festivals ever to hit Salford is upon us, Courtesy of three local event promoters from Irlam.
Irlam Live, which has been organised by Staged Events, will unite legends from the world of pop and soul within one extremely special atmosphere. The three-day event will see some of the biggest and best acts ever to grace Prince’s Park.
The fun will commence on Friday 3 June with ‘Fake Friday’, a day where the country’s finest tribute bands take to the stage. Bon Jovi, State of Quo, Tony Lewis as Robbie Williams and Supreme Queen will get the place rocking in what will be a fun-filled Friday night.
Recently confirmed for Saturday night’s ‘Soulfest Saturday’ is the astounding headline act Billy Ocean. Billy has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and has landed a string of international hits including ‘Get Outta My Dreams, Get into My Car’ and ‘When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going’.
Sunday will provide goers with the opportunity to get their gladrags on as 80’s pop legends take to the stage. In a show that is sure to shake the city T’Pau, Bay City Rollers featuring Les McKeown and headliner Tony Hadley (from Spandau Ballet) will all be performing.
The park itself will provide a glorious location for a festival, with its tree-lined natural amphitheatre. It’s the perfect stage for thousands of people to come and enjoy top acts in a tranquil setting, right in the heart of Irlam.
